Lego Mindstorms NXT One-Kit Wonders


The creative minds behind The NXT STEP blog are back with a brand-new collection of innovative robots. Whether you're just getting started with LEGO robotics or have been building and programming robots for years, LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT One-Kit Wonders is packed with new and exciting techniques, advice, and robots that guarantee awesome results. And best of all, you'll only need one NXT Retail kit to build all ten of them!

LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT One-Kit Wonders will make it simple for you to construct even the most complex of these ten robots, all while you learn the ins and outs of the NXT kit.
You'll learn to build and program:
PunchBot, a robot that you program using old-fashioned punchcards
M, a robot that sorts your M&M candies by color
NXT Dragster, a super-fast racecar that will take you all the way to the drag strip
BobBot, a versatile skid-steer loader, equipped with a ball grabber or demolition claw
RoboLock, a security system for your robots
The Hand, a robotic replacement hand to protect you from those dangerous cleanup jobs, like picking up your brother's gym socks
SPC, a robotic vehicle that can park itself between two objects using front-wheel drive
The Bike, a two-wheeled robot that can balance and steer

Armed with the knowledge you gain from this book, you'll be inventing your own amazing creations in no time.
